Paris Hilton countersues hair firm

Washington: Paris Hilton is countersuing the company that claimed she signed a multi-million dollar contract to promote a hair-extension product and then blew the firm off.

In her countersuit, Paris says she was "professional and honorable" promoting Hairtech International, reports

Indeed, she notes in her docs that the head honcho wrote her an email after a shoot, saying, "Hey Paris. I know it was a long day, but baby you `Rocked.` Just from the takes I saw this is going to be one hellava commercial, you were genuinely amazing."

Hairtech claimed Paris was a hair heretic, showing up for interviews wearing competitive products.

The company also says by going to jail in 2007, Paris breached an implied term to obey the law.

Paris - who was sued by the company for 35 million dolars -- is asking for 3 million dollars plus punitive damages in her countersuit.
